When I was young I thought that a after a wedding, the bride and groom took a trip to the moon and ate lots of honey there. After all, what else would a "honeymoon" be?
When I was little, I was always puzzled about weddings. The line "til death do us part", mainly. I was under the belief that, after the wedding, the bride and groom would go separate ways and have to see each other in secret.
Until I was about 8 (a long time to hold this belief), I thought that men were supposed to marry women who were both younger and shorter than them. I didn't think it was a law or anything, just the socially acceptable thing to do. So I thought very poorly of my uncle who married a woman a couple years older and much taller and thought they must be social outcasts.
When I was little I used to believe that to get divorced, you had to get all dressed up again, have all your family and friends present but this time walk backwards down the aisle of the church, afterall to get married you had to walk forward down the aisle....I believed this until one day I mentioned it to my mum and she explained how it really works...mind you my way sounds way better!
i used to think that husbands and wives looked the same because they were married. i would always say "you can tell their married, they look the same"
once my mom and i were going through her wedding photo album and my mom was telling about it when it suddenly it occured to me that i wasn't in any of the pictures and asked her why she didn't take any of mine ,so she told me that i wasn't there, i got real mad and drove her crazy asking why she didn't invite me. i thought she and my dad got married sometime when i was asleep
When I was little I thought that adults at weddings automatically knew how to dance in unison like dancers in music videos. Really they were just dancing to The Electric Slide.
That getting married and being happy wasn't something you had to work at -- it was just another inescapable part of growing up, like losing your teeth or going to high school.
i thought that every boy would marry his mother in future
I had very complex beliefs about marriage. I thought that, when a girl was ready to marry (in her late teens or early twenties), she would put on a wedding dress, get in a van, and have her parents drive her to the nearest city, bouquet in hand. She would then walk the streets of the city asking any man she saw to marry her, and, once she found someone, they would go to the nearest church and be married on the spot.
When I was maybe 6 years old I was looking at my parents wedding album. I was upset that I didn't get to be the flower girl. How could my parents choose not to have me in their wedding? My mom tried to explain I was born a few years after so I wasn't being excluded, but I was angry. She should've waited for me to be born so I could be in the wedding. It's funny to me now becuase my mom, who was a virgin when married because we're Chrisitan, couldn't have waited to have me first. It's impossible.
I used to believe that whenever 2 people got married they would have a baby and that they would have to get married again to have a second child.
I used to believe that, because my parents were 4 years apart, every couple had to be four years apart to get married, and that the man ALWAYS had to be older.
When I was little, I used to think that one line in the wedding vows was "Will you have this woman to be your awfully wedded wife"
I could never figure out why you would want to marry that person.
It actually made me giggle durring that part of my wedding ceremony!
That "martial arts" had something to do with marriage.
I thought that to get married, your spouse had to have the same eye color as you did.
i thought when you got married you have to choose a whole last name (not your hubbys name) and for ever i was thinking of a good lastname for me!
When I was about seven, I thought I was supposed to marry my brother who was a couple years older than me. And I thought my sister was supposed to marry our other brother. Talk about incest!!!
I believed that if people had the same birthday, they should get married. Having the same birthday as Prince William, at age twelve I wrote a letter to him explaining my theory.
The most ironic thing? The only man I met with the same birthday as me is the man I eventually married!
When I was younger I thought that to elope was to run off and get pregnant before you got married.
